Am I Disqualified for Obama’s Executive Action on Immigration?
The aim of Obama’s executive action is to help more undocumented migrants to come forward and start “playing by the rules” without fear of deportation or being forced apart from their families.
Because of this, many existing rules and programs have been extended to include a broader class of migrant.
The rules are complicated and many cases are judged on a case-by-case basis. Generally speaking though, you will be disqualified from the executive action if you:
Pose a threat to National Security, are a convicted felon, are a gang member, or are an illegal entrant that was apprehended at the border. You may also be disqualified if you have been convicted of a significant or multiple misdemeanor(s), or entered the U.S. unlawfully after January 1, 2014 and were not apprehended at the border
- Entered the U.S. illegally after the age of 16 and after January 1, 2010 (you still will NOT be eligible under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program)
- Do have children that are U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents but you yourself have: not been in the U.S. for at least five years; meet any of the criteria in bullet point one; or present other factors that would make a grant of deferred action inappropriate.
- Are NOT: a foreign-born skilled worker seeking work in the U.S; a foreign-born student seeking opportunities or on-the-job training; or an entrepreneur seeking parole in the United States
Exact criteria can vary on a case-by-case basis. Further information and full requirements/details are available on the DHS website: http://www.dhs.gov/immigration-action

Wites t Law and our team of immigration lawyers have been working around the clock to prepare for the launch of Obama’s executive action on immigration. Once enacted the window to apply could be short if congress moves to try to block it or the program is blocked by lawsuits in the court system, similar to what we saw with gay marriage in some states.
We have put together a FREE, no obligation, program where we will help you now, without charge, to collect and verify all your information paperwork. Once the government releases more information about Obama’s executive order goes into effect, and we determine the amount of attorney’s fees to charge for our services, we will let you know the amount of our fees. If you choose to hire us, we will proceed with your application. In other words, you only pay us if you choose to hire us to represent you in the immigration process. So, there is no risk to you.
Through our no risk, FREE program, we will be better prepared to submit your application once the executive order is enacted and the government starts accepting applications. This should result in you obtaining legal status as quickly as possible.
